The Destination Is the Journey: Man Plans and God Laughs
by Jack Slutzky
The Destination Is the Journey: Man Plans and God Laughs has been in the works for more than three years and is a book for the times.
Seated amongst magnificent cloud-made replicas of the greatest sculptures ever produced, with the sound of a host of angels singing the Hallelujah Chorus, God sits brooding over news He recently heard that the planet Earth was rife with insanity and that the insanity is the result of His own creation the human being.
At the time, God believed endowing His creation with free will would enable this being to become one of His crowning achievements. Alas, He is beginning to accept the fact that it is not. God makes the decision to evaluate the problem. He hopes His delving into these happenings will not lead Him to renege on His words to Noah right after the flood, when He said Never more will the living creation be destroyed.
In due time, and with a fair amount of research, God determines that the answer to the problem resides in the lives of four good men. With the able assistance of Jesus, Satan and Mark Twain, the solution to the insanity on Earth can be resolved and God will know the appropriate action to take.
